Lipsticks are very powerful fashion pieces. They have the ability to either make or mar your appearance. It doesn’t matter how simple your outfit is, if matched with the perfect lipstick colour, it can lift you into something more sophisticated.
Lipsticks come in different colours, shapes and sizes, and sometimes are a reflection of the person using them.
Every classy and fashion savvy woman knows that the lipstick is a very important tool, and doesn’t jeopardise picking the right colour for anything.
As diverse as the colours of lipsticks are, there are those considered common and basic. They are used often, and complement your look more than others. We have 5 of them listed below.
THE RED LIPSTICK
This colour is a favourite for most women, and men also love to see it in women. It is a colour for the bold, trendy and daring lady that wants to make her presence felt.
Red coloured lipsticks bring any outfit to life, and contrary to what people think that one cannot wear it to work, it can be worn anywhere, as long as it’s done in moderation. If you are going for a party or event, you can wear it more, but do it lightly to official gatherings/events and work.
THE PINK LIPSTICK
This is another beautiful one, but it’s important to understand that there are different shades and you have to pick the one that best suits your complexion.
Pink is girlie, lovely and pretty. It can be worn anywhere as well, depending on the look you are going for.
THE BROWN LIPSTICK
There are different shades of brown, but we are focusing on the light brown colour. It is a natural, beautiful, and not ‘overly in your’ face kind of colour, and can be worn with any outfit or to any event. It can also fit any skin colour, and can be worn lightly or heavily.
THE PURPLE LIPSTICK
This colour seems not to be as popular or often used as the rest, but it’s still a classic lip colour because of its bold, unique and beautiful outcome, no matter the shade you pick. It often stands out.
THE NUDE LIPSTICK
This one usually includes colours that are mild and pale. It can be worn to a party contrary to popular belief that it is too mild. It is better worn heavily, but if worn lightly, the eye shadow must come out or be very conspicuous.
Wearing a heavy eye shadow and lipstick can be a disaster, so when people get a bold coloured eye shadow; they tone down the lips with a nude colour.
